Tons of women love them some Michael B. Jordan, and a recent Instagram post by the Fahrenheit 451 actor indicates that when it comes to black women in particular, the feeling is mutual — but not everyone is convinced.
On Tuesday, May 15, Jordan expressed his love for black women to his nearly 6.5 million Instagram followers by posting the music video for rapper Nick Grant‘s latest single “Black Woman” which pays homage to the cocoa butter and honey-fused goddesses.
“My bruh @nickgrantmusic w/ that new heat #blackwoman,” Jordan wrote in his caption.
While you would think the post would be met with the same energy, surprisingly it was not. Many began to question whether Michael B. Jordan even romantically involves himself with the women he is praising.
“[Where] is your lame girl Ashtray? Nah don’t be making $$ off of us,” someone wrote referencing reports that tied the actor to model Ashlyn Castro. “We already know you like dating teenage white girls…you ain’t slick.”
“Lmao I respect you as an actor and love your work, but we all know this post is just another attempt to pander to Black women,” another spectator wrote. “If you truly cared about us, there’ll be no need to state that in every interview. It’s like you’re trying to prove something to yourself. Anyway, comments didn’t disappoint. Glad that ladies see through [it].”
This debate is nothing new. In fact, it has been going on for years.
